New Zealand is an English-speaking country. But the government recognizes another language, too. This is the Maori language. English sailors began to visit New Zealand after 1770. They found a dark-skinned people living there. These were the Maori. They had come from islands in the Pacific Ocean 400 years before －in the 14th century.
For a long time the British government was not very interested in there far away islands. It was made a British colony(殖民地) in 1840. In this year the first British people came to settle in the new country. More and more settlers came from Britain later.

The news report that night was a famine(饥饿)in Ethiopia. The pictures were of people who were so thin that they looked like beings from another planet. The camera focused（聚焦）on one man so that he looked directly at me, sitting in my comfortable living room. All around was the sound of death.
It was clear that the world had not noticed this until now, you could hear the sadness in the voice of the reporter, Michael Buerk. At the end of the reporter he was silent. Paula started crying, then rushed upstairs to check our baby, Fifi, who was sleeping peacefully.
I kept seeing the news pictures in my mind. What could I do? I was only a pop singe rand by now not a very successful pop singer. All I could do was to make records which no one bought. But I would do that, I would give all the profits of the next Rats (the name of the music group he was in) record to Oxfam(an organization in Britain which helps poor music people around the world). What good would that do! It would only be a little money but it was more than I could give just from my bank account. Maybe some people would buy it because the profits were for Oxfam.

One should keep roles. But some people don’t. My neighbour Mr. Smith is a person of such kind. He wouldn't like to obey rules like most of the people in public. For example, when he walks in the streets; he walks on the right side while all the others keep left. In some places, there are notices such as "No Smoking" on the walls. But he has none of it. He purposely lights his cigarette to show he is different from others. In hospitals, libraries and theatres, people always show their dislike to him when he speaks loudly. Though he doesn't always obey rates, sometimes he has to. He has to bend his head when be gets through the gate with a notice "Mind Your Head".
